    John C. Frémont: Fine Pair of 1856 Silk Campaign Ribbons. The "Free Speech/ Free Men/ Free Territory" variety is in excellent condition and one of the nicest designs for this candidate. For accuracy, we note one trivial small stain on the top edge. The "Peoples' Candidates" variety is listed by Sullivan and Fischer, but is the only copy we have ever encountered and is in exceptional near mint condition. Frémont was the first Republican presidential candidate, and in our opinion his campaign ribbons have long been undervalued by the hobby. Lengths 7.375" and 7.25" respectively.
